Kate Martin Mytty

Kate Martin Mytty is actively invested in reconnecting with our ecosystem and its roots through growing and sharing food, learning to harvest seeds, recycling different materials, open water swimming, public history, and deejaying and art. This intention shows up in how Kate works, whether growing or making food, repairing/remixing clothing and textiles, and making furniture. Kate has taught courses at MIT and Tufts University on the need to reimagine waste management, on public markets as a central element of city relationships and economies, and creating organizational structures that reflect democratic values. She has also spoken at Harvard GSD, NYU and MassArt. She holds a Master’s degree in City Planning from MIT Department of Urban Studies and Planning and a Bachelor’s degree in Business and Entrepreneurship from Marquette University. At Sweet Water Foundation, she is a translator-in-residence, contributing to SWF’s The Communiversity through a practice and research cohort, publications, and exhibitions.
Kate and her partner regularly create shared spaces whether at their studio, outside, or at their home for learning about materials, technology, history and cities, collaborative art and music, and gatherings of different communities.
